INTRO (10s):

Hide your kids! Lock the doors! You're listening to HR’s most dangerous podcast. Chad Sowash and Joel Cheeseman are here to punch the recruiting industry, right where it hurts! Complete with breaking news, brash opinion and loads of snark, buckle up boys and girls, it's time for the Chad and Cheese podcast.

Joel (30s):

Oh yeah. A 33 year old electrical engineer revealed that he spent $150 a year to eat all of his meals at a local Six Flags amusement park. Who wants red velvet funnel cake for dinner kids? What's up everybody you're listening to the Chad and Cheese podcast. This is your co-host Joel "fried Oreo" Cheeseman.

Chad (52s):

And this is Chad "what do you mean I'm too old to trick or treat?" Sowash.

Joel (57s):

On this week's show LinkedIn officially goes gig. Who wants bots with their burgers and Buffalo wings? And it's another buy or sell maybe with corn dogs this time. Let's do this.

Chad (1m 12s):

Ah, dude. So we talked about Halloween Kills last week and Jamie Lee Curtis not holding up. That's all I've got to say. She's still a bad ass bitch, just so you know.

Joel (1m 21s):

She is a bad ass. We need Sigourney Weaver and her to do a film where they beat up like murderers and aliens and shit. That's what.

Chad (1m 29s):

That'd be awesome.

Joel (1m 30s):

Well, those screams mean Halloween is coming up, Chad. What are you empty-nesters doing this year?

Chad (1m 38s):

I don't know. This is a not safe for work podcast. So I guess I can go into that, but I'm not.

Joel (1m 45s):

So it's going to be one of those kind of Holloway nights.

Chad (1m 50s):

Oh yeah. You know where you have the costumes that are like always like the, the hooker costumes and it doesn't matter what it is. You got the nurse hooker, you got the, the construction hooker you got. I mean, it's just like, I'm going to get one of those.

Joel (2m 4s):

Well, I'm having a family friendly Halloween this year.

Chad (2m 7s):

Good for you!

Joel (2m 8s):

I have a four year old who's going as Spiderman. I will be a convict from roughly the forties, I guess. And the wife is going as a deviled egg, which means she's an egg with horns with double horns basically. And the bigger kids are moving on. They're hanging out with friends, playing tricks, whatever.

Chad (2m 28s):

Yeah, I love it!

Joel (2m 29s):

So we've sort of officially lost two of the three kids and it'll be the four year old around the block a few times snatching up some Snickers and Reeses. Yeah.

Chad (2m 39s):

That's the way it's supposed to happen. Just so you know, they're supposed to get the hell out and go do their own thing.

Joel (2m 48s):

I agree. I agree. Oh shit. Yeah. Well, let's do some shout outs here on the eve of all hollows.

Chad (2m 56s):

So I'm going to shout out a couple of quick shout outs to Matthew Swanson over at Radancy. He loves the podcast and he hates the unicorn song. Join the club, Matt, more unicorns to come, but we've got to find another sound effect track for that one. Shout out to Mark and Alexa over at Pillar for the swag and the popcorn. It was so salty and sweet. That's good stuff, baby.

Joel (3m 20s):

Indiana popcorn, by the way.

Chad (3m 21s):

It was good. Good catch. Good catch. A big shout out to Eric Anderson who loves the podcast and isn't even in our industry and this isn't the first time we've had listeners reach out that say that they don't understand half the shit that we talk about. Nonetheless, we're pretty fucking entertaining. So that being said, feel free to share the pod with your peers, family, friends, in your social streams. And also give us a review. That's not asking for much, obviously for all the time, love and tenderness that Joel and I put into this podcast just for you kids, just for you.

Joel (3m 55s):

And our favorite reviews are yes, indeed. Shout out to Governor DeSantis from the great state of Florida who took poaching to a whole new level by offering cops from outside of Florida, moving expenses up to $5,000 to come police in Florida if you don't feel welcome in your current state. That was as if Florida needed more unvaccinated workers.

Chad (4m 20s):

Yeah right! That's exactly what they need. Fucking idiots.

Joel (4m 22s):

Who is not an idiot though, Chad is our friends at Hertz, formerly bankrupt Hertz, Tesla and Uber. The companies have all gotten together. Hertz is agreed to buy a hundred thousand Teslas over the next few years. And Uber has plans to offer 50,000 of those to drivers, to rent by 2023. So you're going to see a lot more Teslas on the road.

Chad (4m 47s):

Rolling in a Tesla, being an Uber driver. That's not a bad perk, right?

Joel (4m 50s):

I do like that. I wonder how they pick the Uber drivers. Like is it seniority? Is it a first come? Lottery? That'll be interesting. Okay.

Chad (4m 57s):

That's a good question. That's a good question. A big shout out to Roberto over at Recruitology for sending us new gear as well. I got a t-shirt, got a polo, got a very cool winners zip-up vest kind of Ted Lasso thing, which is really cool, not to mention two COVID tests, which I think is awesome because we're about ready to travel to Belgium. And that's what we're going to need before we get on that plane.

Joel (5m 24s):

I'm not sure what it says about us, that we got a COVID test. Everybody's getting them. They need to make these with like corporate logos on tthe actual tests. There's a business idea.

Chad (5m 34s):

Before you come to see us take this test.

Joel (5m 36s):

We'll Chad you know, nobody likes a good pair of Spanx, like I do. And my next shout out this bank CEO, which is quite a heartening entrepreneurial story, just got like a billion and a half dollars from a big investment firm. So she celebrated by giving all our employees two first-class tickets to wherever the hell they wanted to go.

Chad (5m 59s):

Love it.

Joel (5m 60s):

As well as 10 grand spending money. So get on those Spanx and enjoy a trip around the world wherever you want and look good doing it Spanx employees.

Chad (6m 10s):

Gotta dig that. Gotta dig that.

Joel (6m 13s):

Next one is, you remember Vinita?

Chad (6m 15s):

Yeah, she was over at Maya.

Joel (6m 17s):

Yeah. She has landed at SAP Success Factors. She was always a big fan of the show. I assume she still is. So shout out to Vinita.

Chad (6m 27s):

Yep. So kids it's getting closer. That's right. You gotta go to and register to spend Thanksgiving with the Chad and Cheese and Ostend, Belgium. If you're in Europe, hop on a flight or get in the car and join us for great speakers, amazing content, and of course beer. Now, if you're in the U S and you got nothing better to do, we got, you know, a little cash, hop on a flight, and join us. We'd love to see you! Speaking of beer though.

Joel (6m 57s):


Chad (6m 57s):

Ryan Philmon received his beer drop this month. Compliments of Adzuna and he seemed pretty fucking stoked on the socials. When can we get a VIP beer tasting set up with that cat?

Joel (7m 9s):

Oh, it's already on the schedule Chad.

Chad (7m 11s):

Yes, that's right kids, not only free craft beer delivered to your door, but you also get an hour beer tasting with the Chad and Cheese.

Joel (7m 24s):


Chad (7m 25s):

Just go to beer from Adzuna, bourbon from our people at Sovren. Got to love those cats and maybe a free t-shirt depending on your size right now from,

Joel (7m 36s):

Nothing easier on the eyes than a FaceTime with us!

sfx (7m 38s):

Oh hell now.

Joel (7m 39s):

By the way, if you're going to Europe bonus points, if you fly through Transylvania. All right, let's get to some fantasy football. Chad.

sfx (7m 50s):

Bring it.

Joel (7m 51s):

Sponsored by Oh, look, who's in first place. Chad, after a drubbing of you last week, I'm in first place followed by the wonderful Miss Q "Quincy", Benjamin Franklin Koontz, Jason Vorhees, Putnam like he's in any other costume this weekend, besides Jason, Pistol Pete Suchi, Bill "Football" Fanning, "Criss cross applesauce" Russell, Christy "man on the moon", then you Chad, then bringing up the rear Michael "don't call me hung" Cox. And that is your fantasy football update. As we reach the halfway point to football season.

Chad (8m 30s):

It's about to get interesting.

Joel (8m 32s):

Birthdays, Chad birthdays. We do not have a Halloween birthday in the fan club, unfortunately, but we do have lots of birthdays, Dennis Tupper, big fan of the show, Sean Horton, Garrett Friedman, Ryan Moffitt, Steven penis chair. O'Donnell funniest social media post of the week by far, if you know, you know, Libby Sartain and our sourcing friend Shally Stekrel. Happy Birthday to all those folks.

Chad (9m 5s):

I haven't seen Shally's like under a bridge somewhere or something.

Joel (9m 7s):

And he's got a full-time job, man. He doesn't have time for people like

Chad (9m 13s):

Quick thanks to, to Jasper Spawnyard over at Tow Talent for picking up and writing about our podcast or at least aspects of our podcasts that we dropped just this Monday, where we had the EEOC commissioner, Keith Sonderling the podcast is entitled EEOC talks AI. We talk about tech regulations and enforcement here in the U S but it's more and more broadscale too, because obviously everybody's talking about how AI is impacting hiring and what is the regulatory landscape gonna look like? This is a great conversation. I was pretty stoked with this one.

Joel (9m 55s):

And with that,

Chad (9m 56s):

Topics! Yes, I've got a couple of quick updates. Just let's let me get through this update and then rant, and then we'll go ahead and get to topics. Okay. So first and foremost, quick Canvas update. They just like pulled in 50 million or something like that. Right? So we reported that Ben Herman co-founder and CEO of Canvas ejected a couple of weeks ago, without having a replacement, which seemed kind of odd? You don't generally see that when somebody leaves, you know, in good standing, let's say. Then we heard that there are co interim CEOs, which added another layer of what the actual fuck are they doing over there? Well, I just learned earlier this week, that friend of the show, Maya Grossman CMO left the same day Ben did.

Chad (10m 44s):

So the hunt for the CEO, new CEO has just launched and we will be watching this very closely.

Joel (10m 52s):

Sounds like a horror story over there!

Chad (10m 54s):

I have no clue. So here's my quick Indeed update. So an agency reached out to Joel and I regarding the lack of Indeed traffic, his clients were saying, so while searching for a very generic term, account coordinator posting in Atlanta on Indeed, they noticed that the job search metadata showed that there were over 120 openings, although only eight were showing in the search results. They did this type of search for other jobs. Notice the exact same thing around thro
